Probability and statistics question. You can order food from Jimmy John's with a mean delivery time of 15 minutes with and a standard deviation of 5 minutes, or you can order from Angie's subs with a mean delivery time of 17 minutes with a standard deviation of 4 minutes. You want your pizza delivered within 14 minutes of ordering. What is the probability of each sub shop delivering your food within 14 minutes?

    Ok basically you have to look at the fundamental structure of the bell curve in which SD is clearly displayed in regards to the point at which you would isolate the rest.

    Every standard deviation manifests certain percentage in regards to whole

    In your case you want to find the probability of both stores delivering within 14 minutes. You have to draw a line originating from 14 minutes in bell curves that you will draw with the known standard deviations.
